Under the Republican administration of President George W. Bush, many ordinary Americans have become invisible to their government, Clinton told a crowd of more than 100 people crowded into a Newton coffee shop. Single mothers who need health care, struggling war veterans and others all have gone unnoticed, she said.
"They don't see America," Clinton said of the Republicans. "They have some kind of blinders on."
``Today is Earth Day, and I personally believe every day should be Earth Day,'' the New York senator and Democratic presidential candidate said in Iowa. ``We have a duty to protect God's creation and we have a responsibility to repair the damage that we do as we go on in life.''
She was speaking to about 1,000 people packed into a gymnasium Sunday at Luther College in Decorah, in northeast Iowa.
``Some of the damage ... we didn't know about, we didn't understand,'' she said. ``But now we do _ so we have no excuses left.''

Illinois senator Barack Obama is second with 16 per cent, followed by former U.S. vice-president Al Gore with 16 per cent, and former North Carolina senator John Edwards with 12 per cent. Support is lower for New Mexico governor Bill Richardson, Ohio congressman Denis Kucinich, and Delaware senator Joe Biden.
Among Democrats, Clinton led in the survey with 37 percent support to Illinois Sen. Barack Obama's 20 percent. Former vice president Al Gore, who has said he has no plans to run, had the support of 17 percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents; former North Carolina senator John Edwards stood at 14 percent. No other Democrat received more than 3 percent.
In late February, Clinton led with 36 percent to Obama's 24 percent. Over those two months, Obama has not been able to maintain the momentum he had shown in attracting black support. In the new poll, 43 percent of blacks preferred Clinton for the Democratic nomination while 34 percent preferred Obama."

But this isn’t the only support which Clinton claims today:
Clinton “remains the dominant presidential front-runner among Democrats nationally,’’ Gallup’s Frank Newport reports, with Clinton claiming “ twice the support as her nearest challenger,’’ Obama.
Clinton hits Chicago on May 7, to headline a lunch benefiting the Mercy Home for boys and girls. There will be some separate fund-raisering activity in Chicago for Clinton at that time.
"There are people who would like to dismantle the VA.That would be an unmitigated disaster," the Democratic front-runner for president said in a speech at Veterans Medical Center. "We can't be arguing every year about how much money goes to the VA. That should be taken off the table. That is a solemn obligation."
“By electing Hillary Clinton, we can smash the ultimate glass ceiling once and for all,” said Ferraro, the Democrats’ 1984 choice for vice president. “And in doing so, we will be electing the most qualified and experienced candidate for president.”

Clinton said if Bush vetoed such legislation passed by both the House and Senate, he would “be willing to veto the will of the American people.”
“I challenge him to withdraw his veto threat,” Clinton said.
The Senate narrowly passed the Iraq emergency supplemental funding bill late Tuesday, which included language that sets a 120-day window to begin withdrawing troops from Iraq.
The governor will make the endorsement at Elizabeth City Hall, along with U.S. Rep. Rob Andrews and other Democrats.
Clinton is scheduled to attend the event.
The people confirming the announcement would not allow their names to be used so as not to upstage the governor.
McGovern, a six-term Democrat, said he chose to support Clinton largely because of her potential to make history: If she wins in 2008, Clinton would become the nation's first female president. His decision was crystallized, McGovern said, when he heard his 5-year-old daughter, Molly, excitedly discussing Clinton's candidacy with her kindergarten classmates.
"If you serve your country, your country must serve you," said Clinton, who charged that the White House has ignored "the invisible scars of sacrifice" that come with brain injuries.
Lee Woodruff pressed for the troops to receive treatment equal to what her husband received in private practice after he was injured by a roadside bomb while on assignment in Iraq. "We never had to think about a bill," Woodruff said. "Bob's recovery speaks to that."
Mortgage contracts need to be written in plain, easy-to-understand English; banks shouldn't target the poor for unfair deals; and the government should require a timeout before a bank can take someone's home.
